Yes, men's board. The women's Jones equivalent would be the Mothership. Only did some laps with that one, felt significantly softer. Unluckily the run was not long and steep enough to really get nice speed, so I can't say if it's as stable as the Flagship going straight.

No particular reason why I have a 158. It was the size I had on a demo day, felt fine with and ordered. FWIW, weight range for the '13 was pretty wide: 110-178lbs, IIRC it was the same for the 156. Interestingly, for the '14, I haven't found weight ranges anymore I ride with an app. 21-22in stance and use the center inserts.
